Fieldfisher Manchester partner marks 25 years of AIM

David Bowcock, corporate partner in the European law firm’s Manchester office, has been advising companies listed on London’s AIM Market for over two decades.
European law firm Fieldfisher is pleased to mark 25 years of the London AIM Market25 years of the London AIM Market, which is celebrating its landmark anniversary (19 June 2020).

Having established its equity capital markets (ECM) practice in 2000, five years after AIM was launched as the Alternative Investment Market – a sub-market of the London Stock Exchange – in June 1995, Fieldfisher’s stature as a trusted adviser to AIM-listed companies has grown immensely.

As of June 2020, Fieldfisher is ranked as the number two legal adviser to AIM-listed companies by Adviser Rankings, with 40 quoted issuer clients and in 2019 was the leading law firm advising on AIM transactions by deal volume. Since 2008, Fieldfisher has advised on more AIM IPOs than any other law firm, acting on 39 successful flotations raising a total of £587 million.*

The firm is also consistently ranked in Band 1 for Capital Markets: AIM by Chambers and Partners and our partners are recognised as leading practitioners in their field, credited as being “very proactive, very professional and very diligent” by our clients.

Corporate partner David Bowcock, who joined Fieldfisher Manchester in April 2018 from Brabners, is a specialist in public M&A and has acted for a number of AIM-listed clients executing buy and build projects in the business services, healthcare, and technology sectors for over 20 years. His clients include support services companies Restore plc and Marlowe plc.

To mark this occasion, Fieldfisher has produced a timeline charting our ECM team’s AIM deal highlights over the past 25 years.

Commenting on AIM’s milestone anniversary, David Bowcock, corporate partner at Fieldfisher in Manchester, said:
“I would like to congratulate my colleagues at AIM for the stunning achievements of this market over the past 25 years.
“If I had to pick out one highlight of my 20+ years of working with AIM-listed businesses, it would be acting for Restore plc on 60 acquisitions leading to them being named as AIM Company of the Year in 2016.
“I look forward to assisting clients on many more deals on AIM, particularly as deal activity begins to resume strongly following the Covid-19 lockdown. ”
